Cruise ship voyages can be some of the most luxurious vacations that a person will ever experience. And Morton Jablin can likely attest to that fact, as he and his wife, Charlotte, enjoyed breaks of this kind for over 50 years during their marriage. However, for the past decade the former sailor has actually lived aboard one of these pleasure-trip vessels.
In April 1988 construction began on the Seven Seas Navigator, leading to the ship’s launch some three years later. Despite the launch, though, it would be another eight years before work on the vessel was completed. Then, shortly after the craft’s completion, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises – now Regent Seven Seas Cruises – welcomed the Navigator into its fold.
For the 12 months that followed, the Seven Seas Navigator’s home port was Nassau – the capital city of the Bahamas. And following that, the ship called Hamilton, Bermuda, home for over a decade. Then in 2011 the vessel moved back to the Bahamas.
